In 2013, Ubisoft Motion Pictures and Sony Pictures Entertainment announced that they had partnered up to make a film based on Watch Dogs.
Ubisoft did not say when we should expect the film to hit the silver screen, given the typically tumultuous life of video game adaptations. It has been long since we last heard about it. At Ubisoft’s conference, Yves Guillemot brought Sony’s Global Sales and Marketing head Jim Ryan on point to basically confirm all of this information again, almost three years after the original proclamation. Sony and Ubisoft will be partnering with New Regency to produce a motion picture based on Watch Dogs.
The release date is yet unknown, but given this news from the stages of E3 we believe that it’s not far off.
